Summary

The PARIS (acronym for Photon Array for studies with Radioactive Ion and Stable beams) project aims at building an innovative gamma-array, playing the role of an energy-spin spectrometer, a calorimeter for high-energy photons and a medium-resolution γ-detector. The design of PARIS envisages a device using two shells: the most advanced scintillator technology, LaBr3(Ce) crystals, for the inner volume offering simultaneously high efficiency and relatively good energy resolution; and more conventional techniques, e.g. NaI crystals, for the outer shell.

In the talk the flag-ship physics cases driving the PARIS project will be reported, the status of the project will be presented and the most probably next steps will be discussed.
